Chris Watson (UK) is a sound recordist and composer who has developed a particular passion for recording the sounds of animals, their habitats, and atmospheres from around the world. Watson has most recently been exploring aspects of spatial sound through Ambisonic installations in collaboration with renowned galleries around the world.
Since boyhood, Ánde Somby is a Sámi artist who has been yoiking the keepers of the land: the underground fairies and citizens of the spirited part of the world.
This past January Ánde and Chris released an album together, Yoiking with the Winged Ones. The album is a powerful and enthralling synthesis of Somby’s passionate raw yoiks, filled with an energy drawing parallels to punk, in concert with the sounds of Lofoten nature in Northern Norway, recorded and produced by Watson.
Insomnia will be presenting the live, world premiere of this project.
